“Out of all of the games I thought might inspire Hearthstone…Peggle was never on that list. Regardless, Peggle comes to mind as a possible major inspiration for Hearthstone’s presentation.
Peggle managed to make the relatively obscure game of pachinko into a global hit by mastering the art of audio visual feedback. Peggle is great because every single thing you do sets off a barrage of rainbows and fireworks. It just feels good. Hearthstone does something similar for the collectible card game.”
Have I mentioned how jealous I am that I’m NOT playing Hearthstone right now?
